But still TSVN/SVN shouldn't autonomously detect and react on such a change. I
would expect to be able to do just anything with the WC files and then be able
to do a commit/status without any issues comparing/commiting the changes since
the last update.

Hm, ok, when and how? Does it revert obvius renames back to rep name? Or move
to the new name of WC?

Yeps, everything was okay in repository. Only the WC in which some changes were
made had gone bad, and as mentioned we could do a new checkout and commit
without any problems. I can see that the my co-worker experiencing this had
done a server side delete of some of the temp files ~, .obj, .tds with the same
basename, after the WC had been last updated, maybe that could trigger

As far as I have been told no renaming had been done in the WC prior to these
